Here's how publisher Quirk Books describes the new book, due on Sept. 15:

From Quirk Books—publisher of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies—comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak and tentacled mayhem! Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, swashbuckling pirates and other seaworthy creatures. ...

With Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Quirk Classics has also developed a new Austen-to-monster ratio.
